Even in November this is a most beautiful place. We walked on the beach and cliffs enjoying the spectacular scenery, seabirds and even a seal who popped up to see what two fishermen were up to. Unspoilt natural beauty- let's hope it is kept that way.

Beautiful beach, deep blue sea- hardly anyone around so easy to let the dog run free. Perfect sand, easy access. Lucky with weather- nice little spot.

Good beach not so many amenities as others but still good. Small basic toilet block, not great. Car park right next to beach.

Harlyn bay is a lovely place to visit, we were there in October so not sunbathing! But we were lucky enough to have good weather so playing with kids and dogs on the beach was fab, nice clean beach and kids even had a dip on the water 😊

This is a lovely beach and great for dog walkers. It is a protected cove but great for body boarding or surfing
